Product Description

Kenmore Canister Vacuum Cleaner - Versatile

This lightweight, flexible Kenmore canister vacuum cleaner provides the power, convenience and versatility needed to give you a complete clean without any hassle. Equipped with a powerful 2-motor system, this Kenmore vacuum boasts powerful suction when switching between any of its four height adjustments, ranging from bare floor to carpet. Reach all those nooks and crannies with a 360-degree swivel and a hose that hooks up to three different attachments that store neatly within the canister. Cleaning is a breeze with this Kenmore vacuum cleaner.

  • Powerful suction pulls dirt from deep within carpeting, rugs and upholstery, while providing enough airflow to make cleaning hard surfaces a breeze.
  • The 360-degree swivel hose eliminates twisting and tangling, so you have the flexibility you need for a deep clean in any direction.
  • A HEPA filter pulls 99.97% of dust and dander particles as small as 0.3 microns out of the air as you vacuum, for cleaner air and fewer allergy triggers.
  • Multiple height settings help position the cleaning head for optimum airflow and powerful cleaning on bare floors, berbers, high pile carpets and even shag.
  • The headlamp shines in the dark to reveal dust and dirt lurking under furniture and hiding in corners, so soil build-up doesn't stand a chance.

very serviceable vacuum for the money
I've had this for over a year and am very happy with it. I own two of the $400+ Kenmore canisters which both started having problems with either the on/off switch or the power beater shorting out though neither one was even ten years old. With a houseful of cats, mine get used hard. I bought this thinking I could save money and interchange parts such as the powerhead; that did not happen. The wands can be interchanged but the connection on the hose where it clips into the canister is done differently enough that they couldn't be interchanged. It still is a handy unit. Compact, good suction, self-powered powerhead pulls itself forward. Not too shabby for $150 bucks. You can tell it's the "budget model" by the shorter length of the hose, the on/off has to be done with your foot because it's on the canister and I don't feel this unit would take a lot of throwing around before stuff would break. Other than that, if you can be nice to it and change the bag regularly, it seems like it's going to last a while. Note: do not, on any of these sweepers, detach the powerhead or wand from the electrical connection while the unit is running. We've done that for years and wondered why the powerhead begins to act like it's shorting out after a few years. I finally had my electrician look at it and he said when they are separated while the unit is running, there is arcing between the connections and that causes irreparable damage. Turn the unit off, then detach whichever end you want and then restart the sweeper. A pain but your sweeper will last longer so it will be worth it.

Canister Vacuum Cleaner Lime
Although this vaccuum vacuums carpets well, I was VERY dissapointed that it is so difficult to remove the head(unplugging from the top instead of bottom like my old one). It makes it very difficult to switch between the carpet head and the attachments!! Poor description on the website too!! I would never have bought this model if i had realized how difficult it is. I am VERY dissapointed. This is poorly designed!!

A Good Vacuum

Purchased this as a gift for my 80 year old mom. She was in need of a new canister vacuum and those are not as easily found than the uprights. Was very happy to find this Kenmore one and was hesitant about the lime green but she loved the color! Works very well for the light cleaning she does. Lightweight enough for her to maneuver around. I ordered it online and it was ready for pick-up within the day. Good experience all around.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Runs great

Very happy with this purchase. It runs great and works well with removing hair. Good customer service at the store. Employee knew differences between the models. Love the retractable cord and the light weight. Would prefer a different color, but who's looking. Love it and recommend it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Better then expected

I read the reviews and have used this vacuum cleaner now four times. The suction is much stronger then I expected and easy to handle. The cord is very long and the canister is light. The only criticism is that the vacuum bag is big for the inside so you don't fill it unless you move it around. But otherwise a great vacuum cleaner.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

SuperVacuumfortheMoneyHoney

Wow. I bought this vacuum to replace another Kenmore model that I had purchased back in 2000 and had repaired in 2005 and again in 2008 in the hopes of keeping it going through some tough times. Well in 2014 after 14 years of service it sucked it's last dust and gave up. After researching the newer models and checking them out at the store I settled on this model 116.29229 and am very pleased. The only drawback is the on/off switch is foot operated on the canister but I am getting used to that as my old vacuum had the switch on the wand. There is a model that is a step up from this one but for another $150. Overall I highly recommend this one despite its lime green color (unless of course you love lime green appliances). Again, I would recommend this and rate it 4.5 stars if I could (the .5 star would be a deduction for the on/off) switch. On my wool rugs and berber wall to wall and bare floors this is one heck of a vacuum! Very powerful and easy to use.

Great Machine for the Price

I have five small dogs. Two are Pomeranians, which shed mercilessly. I was cleaning my house with two vacuums, a small bagged canister, and a bagged upright. It got the job done, but I was always running into situations where I had to drag out BOTH machines. That gets old pretty quick. Enter the Lime Green Kenmore Canister. I saw these on sale at the web site, and decided to go to my local Sears store to look at it and test it out. I was impressed with what I saw so it went home with me. So far, I'm thrilled. The canister itself has very strong air flow so cleaning with the tools is fast and effective. The power nozzle has adjustable height settlings for different floor surfaces. Properly set, it glides along the carpet and pretty much moves itself. The headlight illuminates your path, so you can easily see what you're picking up. The noise level is moderate with the power nozzle on; it's fairly quiet when using the tools. The only downside I have seen is it's not the easiest machine to set up with its existing wands for above floor cleaning. However, it does accept standard size attachments, so if you have an older canister with wands, you can use them. That's what I do and it's much more convenient than disassembling everything from the power nozzle. It's also a boon if you happen to have some high quality vacuum attachments that you use for a particular purpose. If it's a standard canister, chances are they will fit. I have a wonderful old horse hair dusting brush and an air driven upholstery tool that I would hate to give up. Happily I don't. Bags and filters for this machine are also common and easily found at Sears or at other online stores for a reasonable price. This machine won't eat you up on those fronts, unlike some more expensive machines. Long term durability, I cannot tell. However, the machine seems to be constructed well, with heavy duty plastic, and enclosures that open easily and close properly. It looks promising, especially if you keep it properly maintained. Overall, I think it's a value you cannot beat. It does a wonderful job on carpets, has ample suction for bare floors and upholstery, and is quiet to boot. I have seen many more expensive machines that are not nearly as polished and slick as this basic vacuum. I highly recommend it.

Could not be happier with my vacuum purchase

We are so happy with the new vacuum we bought, I had the top of the line Kenmore for last 20 years and kept having it repaired until it just got to the point we needed to get a new machine and we went down in the price but not in the quality, it's just right for us.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
